It can be a hot spot for cobia, dolphin, kingfish, jack crevalle and Spanish mackerel during the spring and summer with red snapper, grouper, amberjack and spadefish being there all year.
Greater amberjack hover over our reefs year round, but are off-limits during June and July.
One hundred to 130-pound leader material won't scare away a hungry amberjack
if you have the right bait.
The idea was to pick off a wahoo, sailfish or kingfish on the spot's periphery before settling down to focus on amberjack.
We knew we had amberjack all throughout the water column, but we needed a bunch of fish right at the surface, so Mayer tossed handfuls of small pilchards off the transom.
Each of the spots I visit on a regular basis holds specific bluewater gamefish, with Man's Land a conglomerate of enough giant amberjacks, great barracudas and cobia that on any given day a handful of live chum will make your forearm muscles dance.
That covers the gamut of toothy critter, billfish and just about everything that might show up, from a stray school of yellowfin tuna to a "don't even think about casting to that" amberjack.
Gags enjoy more cover, and amberjacks
hunt above that structure, often intercepting baits on the way to the bottom feeders.
